The Arab coalition led by Saudi Arabia participated in the delivery of humanitarian aid to the governorate of Saada, which is considered the main Houthi stronghold and is situated in northern Yemen, after a period of calm during which some tribal figures pledged to provide a safe route for the admittance of aid and to ensure that it is delivered to the needy.

An official at the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre clarified that Yemeni charities provided lists of the names of families according to their relief needs to ensure delivery as soon as possible. 6,000 food baskets and 40 tonnes of dates were distributed and 20 tonnes of medicines and urgent medical supplies were delivered to the Saudi Al-Salam hospital in Saada. The official stressed that the centre “does not differentiate between the spectra of Yemeni people”.

The general supervisor of the centre Dr Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabiah said that the centre is keen to provide assistance to its brothers in Yemen and deliver humanitarian assistance to all Yemeni provinces including Saada which received 220 tonnes of food, medicine and medical supplies.

In addition to this, humanitarian convoys provided by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre arrived in the city of Taiz, the third biggest Yemeni city, from the southern city of Aden, after the siege on Taiz was lifted last Friday by the national army and the Popular Resistance with the support of Arab coalition forces. The items of relief include 14,000 food baskets.

The admittance of relief came after the governor of Taiz, Ali Maamari, announced that the High Relief Committee will continue to despatch large quantities of relief in the coming days.
